Lake Owyhee State Park lies next to a 53-mile-long lake formed by Owyhee Dam. Breathtaking views of the Owyhee Mountains await. A boat trip up the lake (we sell fuel, ice, and food to help you stock up) from the park is one of the many not-to-be-missed experiences in eastern Oregon. Look closely! Bighorn sheep and pronghorn antelope live here, as do golden eagles, coyotes, mule deer, wild horses and (rarely) mountain lions. Critters aren't your game? Rockhounds and hikers are welcome in this wilderness paradise. Use the park as your base camp to explore the badlands of Oregon.

The main campground (McCormack) has electric and tent sites, showers, a boat ramp, tepees, a wastewater dump station, and more. The Indian Creek campground has electric sites, fuel, ice and a boat ramp. The Gordon Gulch day-use area has a boat ramp and a large, shaded picnic area.

Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
June 23 Do Not stay in Teepee by Jeffry Stoker
We had a rattlesnake crawl into the we were staying in and curl up next to the twin mattress. The Teepees are not secured at the bottom. We had lizards and snakes in our Teepee. Not worth the cost. Ranger still has not called us back about the rattlesnake. We elected to get a hotel instead.
May 23 Gem Stone Among the Rocks by Claude 05-23-10
Lake Owyhee as is now known. Is a Gem itself the area abounds with wildlife as noted and usually easily seen.
May 5 'Beautiful' by Shawna
I have not been back to the lake in quite a while, but when I was growing up my family would drive all the way there from Portland. Its beautiful! TRUST ME! Its a must see! There are caves too!
